Breast Lift

Breast Lift San Diego


A woman may experience changes in her breast’s shape and position for any number of reasons, such as fluctuations in weight, pregnancy and breastfeeding, age, or even genetics. A breast lift enhances the shape of the breasts by raising them and removing loose skin, which can also increase firmness.  Breast lifts are ideal for women who are satisfied with their cup size but want to restore the shape and position of their natural breasts. During your initial consultation, Dr. Pietraszek will go over your needs and expectations for breast surgery to help ensure that your treatment is tailored to fit your needs and provide you with the best possible results. 

What Is a Mastopexy?

Breast lifts, or mastopexies, are often confused with breast augmentation. A breast lift will not increase or decrease your cup size but will reposition and improve existing tissue for a more flattering look. For many, a breast lift alone can help them accomplish their plastic surgery goals. The breast lift procedure provided by our La Jolla plastic surgeon is intended to create a younger appearance by raising and reshaping the breast tissue.

What You Can Expect with Breast Lift Surgery

A breast lift is an outpatient procedure that is usually completed in a few hours, which means it can be performed in one day, requires no overnight stay, and patients are typically cleared to go back to work in a week. During treatment, Dr. Pietraszek will remove excess skin and lift breast tissue to help your breasts appear firmer and tighter. Recovery time is usually two to four weeks, and limited activity is recommended so that you can properly heal. You may also need to wear a special bra for extra support and protection. 

For many patients, looking and feeling their best involves reversing certain signs of aging. Sagging breasts are one of the more common aging symptoms in women and can be exaggerated by body changes over the years. Reversing aesthetic breast issues with breast lift surgery creates a more appealing aesthetic so you can feel confident in your own skin.
